Fresh-strong-quality
It opens with an explosion of citrus that remain throughout the life of the perfume. It is more than a Flanker, a wonderful spring-summer perfume, but it does not have that generic aquatic smell and can be worn at any time due to the high persistence and very good start.
It can be called: the green version of the original or better called FAHRENHEIT PROASPAT or FAHRENHEIT SPORT.
Final conclusion: FRESH (where GRAPEFRUIT-violet-basil and mint make their head) - POWERFUL- OF QUALITY.

Fahrenheit improved
I bought the original Fahrenheit out of the hype and legacy it has but I was unimpressed, the famous 'petrol' notes threw me off. I don't like it, I find it hard to wear even though I don't dislike it. I can wear it but I rather wear anything else.
Along came Aqua Fahrenheit. I found 1 at a discounter bin with no tester so I decided to pass however, months later it was still there and knowing it was discontinued I took that leap of faith and it did pay off!

First of all there's nothing aquatic about this flanker, perhaps Fahrenheit Eau or Fahrenheit Cologne would have been a more fitting name (not that that's relevant). Aqua drops many notes from the original which makes it a simpler an more wearable fragrance. I get a lot of grapefruit and Basil which works great with the violet, I just hope I got a little more mint.

This is a great spring/summer frag, one of my favs perhaps. So glad I got a 120ml at a great price.

Aqua by name, but not necessarily aquatic
I am not even sure whether this is still in production, but it is certainly still available on line. If you are a fan of the original Fahrenheit with a fresher twist, then this is worth checking...

Interesting homage to a Classic
Dior Aqua Fahrenheit is a bright, transparent and greener reinterpretation of the Classic Dior Fahrenheit. The citrus burst in the opening is refreshing and juicy; mint soon enters the composition introducing the green theme which accompanies the wearer throughout the day. Mint - Basil - Patchouli - enough Vetiver to balance the green dewy sweetness of the aforementioned notes. Once the citrus has faded Violets spring to life and bring a floral lightly powdery element to the green party. The citrus-green top and aromatic-floral mid are supported by a woody leather accord, which draws inspiration from the Classic Fahrenheit Base. The fragrance is pleasant, François Demanchy has proven his skill in creating a balanced, greener, lighter but not watered down homage to a wonderful Classic, which does not stray off onto the beaten aquatic path of modern mens perfumery. A pleasure to wear!

Eau de Fahrenheit
A lighter, more wearable Fahrenheit...

Aqua Fahrenheit is a new take on the original Fahrenheit, with a concept of "fire meets water", hence the "Aqua" prefix.

To me, I think this is a lighter, summer version of the original, a kind of "Eau de Fahrenheit" almost. It has a huge citrus note, provided by grapefruit, and this stays throughout the life of the fragrance, only drying down to original Fahrenheit at the end. You still get the violet leaf/leather (ie the "petrol" note) combination in the background, but the top and middle of the fragrance is dominated by the Grapefruit and Mandarin. I also get the mint and herbs, which combine with the citrus to give it a fresh feeling.

If I had to give it a name, I would call it Fahrenheit "fresh", because if you found the original stuffy and "too much", then give this one a try. It's a great clean, citrus take on the original "dark" and "heavy" Fahrenheit, and it can be worn all year round in my opinion. New, original take on a classic from Dior. Really good stuff.

Nice interpretation!
This is a good flanker of original Fahrenheit.

Fresh and comforting, it does really remembers the original scent but there's no smell of gasoline that many dislike.

I smell a nice grapefruit note combined with violet and leather.

Good lasting power (about 8 hours), sillage and projection.

Better than latest "sport" releases. Worth a try at least. Thumbs up!

Fresh opening with heavy citrus plus mint and basil; It has less violet than the original (good!) and a very good leather & vetiver drying.
